The TransInclusive group presents its second annual LGBT Prom Aug. 25 at 7 p.m. This year the event will be held at The Venue Fort Lauderdale, which is in the heart of Wilton Manors.

This year’s theme is Masquerade, and will give you a chance to dust off those extravagant masks, dress in your finest formal attire, and dance until your feet turn blue. 

Last year's prom was filled with so many gems. Guests were treated to delicious food, elegant décor, danceable music, and genuine fellowship. There was also a Whitney Houston tribute last year that got everybody talking. 

Who knows what kind of tribute we will get this year, especially since we lost our ultimate Queen, Aretha Franklin. Speaking of royalty, there was also crowning of prom King and Queen. 

But wait there’s more. 

“We will have King, Queen and Supreme, which is our new category,” said Carson Graham of the TransInclusive Group. “This will allow non binary and gender non-conforming individuals to be apart of it. Overall it’s amazing, so far we have over 10 nominees running this year!” 

There will also be a special celebrity guest stopping by. Anticipate seeing actor and Transman Marquise Vilson fresh from his appearance on Law and Order SVU. Music for the night will be provided by DJ Terry of Miami, while red carpet hosting duties will be handled by Champagne T. Bordeaux and Radjee Narinesingh. 

Make sure you dress to impress, because there will be interviews and tons of red carpet selfies for Instagram. Not to mention, a unique photo booth that posts pics straight to your social media accounts.

“Our Prom is a safe space where we can be visible and free with people that live like us or just want to support us,” said Graham.

TransInclusive, is a Trans Led Action Support Group whose goal is “to minimize dispartites in Healthcare, Education, Housing and Employment opportunities; Lift discrimination and focusing on social equality for the LGB(T)Q community.”
